For centuries, rhinoceroses have been an integral component of creative bodies of thought in contemporary art and culture. Owing to its enormous physique, the rhinoceros stands for strength, tranquility, and harmony with the environment. No creature on this planet leaves behind an image in the minds of people like the rhinoceros, be it as an example for something worth protecting, or as inspiration for some of the most valuable oil paintings in the world.
A masterpiece of nature which defends its territory, loves its family, and is evolutionarily setting out on a path so gripping it cannot be told in words. It is a depiction of natural perpetualness with a perfect biological blueprint. Geologically, rhinoceroses are a very old group. Fossils have proven the existence of prehistoric rhinoceroses from the Eocene age (about 50 million years ago).
The first silver bullion from the collection Le Grand Mint

„Per aspera ad astra" is the inscription is displayed on the 25 Livres / Lira / Pounds silver coins of Le Grand Mint: "To the stars through difficulties” is the essence of this saying originating from ancient times. With this we are also sending out a clear message against the anguish in these crisis-ridden times of environmental destruction and wars.

The pure silver (9999/1000) of the noble coin guarantees security and preserves confidence.The precious collector and bullion coin is undoubtedly a safe investment in uncertain times. No wonder, as the exquisite embossing of 999.9 fine silver is one of the few coins worldwide most closely approaching full purity.
